With its mullioned bay windows, gables, and tall chimneys, this hotel in an 1886 neo-Jacobean-style building evokes the luxury of bygone days. You can relax in the clubby bar or on the Italianate terrace overlooking the extensive grounds. Public rooms such as the Great Hall, with wood paneling and marble fireplace, complement the main-house guest rooms, which have faux-antique furnishings. For the best views, ask for a room overlooking the gardens. Other rooms are in a
new wing. The fancy Trevelyan Restaurant relies on a French foundation to present British cuisine. The hotel is about a 10-minute drive from Stratford.
